    App starts...and then vanishes (XP Pro, SP1 etc etc)

    I recently started having a problem with Exact Audio Copy, my CD ripping tool of choice. The main window never makes an appearance, although EAC.EXE briefly pops up in Task Manager. It's the only program doing this, and I have nothing to correlate the problem with - no signigicant changes of any kind, just workaday stuff.

    Any ideas? The EAC forum produced no responses, and although this may not be an XP specific issue, that's the OS I'm having trouble with it on, so here it is! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Did it just start doing this Mark? I have had Apps do something like that before and I just reinstalled them and it normally fixed the problem. A couple of times I used System Restore and that did the trick. It's as if something became corrrupted and the fresh install or System Restore seem to fix it. You didn't say so I wasn't sure if you had tried that yet.

    Yeah, sorry, I forgot to add the things that I had tried. I downloaded a newer version, unzipped it to a separate drive. I removed the registry information and renamed the original EAC install folder.

    The new version did the same thing. That is, it never appeared onscreen but there was a blip on the Task Radar. I looked to removed the registry entries again, and they hadn't been recreated. The app isn't getting far enough to write them again. I can't reproduce this problem on any other XP machine I have access to either. <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>

    System Restore won't help much as I really don't know when this behavior started. I haven't used it in a while (a few months), and the last time I did, it worked.
